Bev and Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Frances. I have fond memories of riding horses with all of you. Frances would give me special attention when I first started riding-what a awesome person she was. I am so glad that God had our paths cross, be-cause I met a very caring and wonderful person. I am sorry that I was unable to come to the funeral home. In Christian Love, Pandora
